Held captive on obsolete Super 8 and Betamax film formats for years, archival footage of some of classic rock’s best-known names will be available to fans by the end of the year.
Plans are in motion by Rockworld.TV to transfer and remaster the historic footage on more modern equipment for consumption by classic rock fans.
Among the artists featured on this footage are The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Aerosmith and The Grateful Dead.
According to Rockworld.TV’s Pete Hadfield, much of the footage has rarely, if ever, been available to the public.
Rockworld.TV has plans to make the footage available for broadcast sometime later this year.
